后俄罗斯世界秩序

布鲁塞尔—俄罗斯干预乌克兰以及正在发酵的克里米亚危机被错误地称为第二次冷战的开端。但是,尽管俄罗斯总统普京藐视国际法的余波以及公共观点将远远不同于苏联长期的击败资本主义宣言,但其地缘政治涟漪效应必将有过之而无不及。

俄罗斯即将自绝于全球经济,而这样做将带来国际关系新时代。国际制裁只是第一个后果。市场和银行会惩罚不确定性,因此俄罗斯经济将极大地受到全球贸易和投资的排挤,未来很可能陷入慢增长甚至无增长。

当然,这决不是俄罗斯的丧钟。更广泛的后果将是国际政治和各国政府解决从全球治理到气候变化的各种共同问题的方针的剧变。结果甚至可能是积极的,如果乌克兰事件出人意料地打开了将在21世纪扮演决定性角色的快速兴起的国家发生重大重新组合之路的话。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
